You should report which version of FreeBSD you are using.  It might have 
tested OK for the committer, but not for you.

By the way, I didn't get the error you reported in your first message, 
but I did get the error reported in your later message.  I am using 
FreeBSD 8.2 STABLE on the amd64.

The same committer?  Or someone else.  If it is a repeat offense, I can 
see why you would want to blow off some steam.

However as a committer myself, I do like it when someone politely points 
out my error, and gives me a chance to correct myself.  For example, I 
recently had a very pleasant exchange with someone who helped me fix my 
math/sage port for FreeBSD 9.
